South West Health Matters

We are going to get pupils from Murrayburn Primary School out into Hailes Quarry Park for some fresh air and fun learning activities. These will include:

  • scavenger hunts
  • shelter building
  • environmental games
  • team-building games

These will all help to bond the group and encourage teamwork.

The programme of activities will improve the health of the children involved by encouraging them to be more active and use the outdoors for a variety of purposes. They will increase their interaction with nature and improve personal development skills as well as their physical health.
